Audience- An online continuing education course for nurses, medical health professionals, and other interested individuals working in a correctional setting

Delivering healthcare in a correctional setting requires creativity and determination. Healthcare staff must understand the processes and services in place in a particular facility in order to properly create and manage treatment plans for patients under their care. In an environment where healthcare is not the primary priority, treatment goals can easily be sidelined. The more you understand about the processes of diagnostics and treatment in your particular setting, the better health care you will be able to deliver.

Requirements for success completion are to view the module, participate in the interactive check points, and complete the review questions and post test.


After participating in this educational session, you will be able to:

  1. Describe factors that might affect the timely delivery of health care services.
  2. Outline medication procurement factors that affect medication prescriptive practices.
  3. List factors that may lead to missed clinical diagnoses.
